Diamonds: They’re Not Just for Jewelry Anymore

Antwerp-based diamond manufacturer Dali Diamond is bringing diamonds to the next level of fashionability, using them to adorn leather handbags. The newly unveiled “Diamond Delvaux” is a limited-edition high-end luxury handbag designed and crafted by the Delvaux leatherwear company. Each bag is highlighted by a .50-ct. diamond, manufactured according to Dali’s WebCut design.

The Diamond Delvaux made its debut at the International Jewellery Tokyo show in Japan, where a bag was presented to Japanese movie star Maki Mizuno. It represented the first step in a worldwide marketing campaign by Dali to raise awareness of the WebCut diamond, a 48-facet diamond cut inspired by spider webs.

The Diamond Delvaux series has been limited to 100 pieces, each of which is numbered and certified. Created from ostrich leather, the bags are handmade in Delvaux’s workshop.
